    Background: Thirty-four member nations of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) opened their annual administrative council meeting in Rome on Monday (20 November). For the first time, Bangladesh was received with full member status.

    At this session, which is to last until 1 December, a main topic for discussion is expected to be the "FAO Annual Review". According to the report, the developing countries are losing the race between food production and expanding population for the second successive year.

    The FAO is the oldest specialised agency of the United Nations. Founded in 1945 with 42 participating nations, today membership exceeds 125.
